  • Just getting ready to smoke some nuts after finishing 8 lbs. of cheddar. I use a large and a medium perforated aluminum pizza sheet tiered with ceramic ramekins. Using hickory today but have used cherry or apple in the past. I use a standard plate s…
  • Thanks everyone. I don't want to risk shattering my stone so I will try another garden center for the slate. Ripert says to by several as they are likely to crack and to keep on cooking even if the stone you are using does crack. Have some prime str…
  • OMG,OMG!!! I'm feelin the love! Really can't wait to try this. Thanks and Merry, merry.
  • I'm with Serial Griller.. Dust w/ cornmeal, salt and pepper and pan fry. Best fish I have ever had. Homemade hash browns are great with this! That said, if I had some left over, I would smoke it on the egg with some maple.
  • Smoked this morning indirect with cherry and an ice pan at 150. They are now wrapped in bacon and I will finish on the gasser as Iv'e got two pork tenderloins on the egg. Will let you know how they turn out.
  • Thanks Richard! I'll give it a try with perhaps an apple/ cherry mix. Will let you know how it goes. Janet
  • Thanks everyone! I'll send this along to my bud.
  • Try cutting the bourbon with an equal amount of soy sauce. That mixed with brown sugar is one of my "go to" marinades for pork tenderloin. Always a crowd pleaser! Good luck. Janet
  • Bravo! The unregistered poster is a spelling challenged douch(e). Glad his most recent attack was ignored.
  • Yep. Checked with my trusty Taylor and got the same reading. Five are stuffed but the one I'm using for temp is not (left it unstuffed as a control. I've got one stuffed with pineapple and jalapeno and coated with Pineapple Head, can't wait to try t…
  • Thanks all. Hope they are ready to come off when company comes at six for steaks! BTW I,m using a Polder.
  • Not budging from 145 for 1 hr. says plateau to me. What gives???
  • Thanks all. Have e-mailed MollyShark. Wish me luck, Janet
  • It was fresh off the boat last Wednesday and smoked after a brine with Raging River, on Friday. Vacuum packed the next day.Thanks! Janet
  • I made my dog Norman smile when I took him flounder fishing this morning.
  • Thanks! I found it just as you replied. This cake it great! I add crushed walnuts to the final toppong.
  • Never mind... found it. It's Jupiter Jims recipe for Too Easy Apple Cake from the Florida Cookbook that I found on Naked Whiz's site.
  • I'll be off line for awhile...just barffed on the keyboard.LOL Janet
  • Mayo for sure! Also like the new olive oil mayo for cooking. But, Miracle Whip is a must for leftover turkey sandwiches. We make them with white bread to really trash it up. It's the only time I buy those things. Janet
  • Have had dogs all my life and know what dried poop looks like and this "ain't" it. The white is bright white and smooth,like dried plaster. The rest is dark brown with texture. I've googled images and the only thing close (that I have found) is a li…
  • Thanks for responding but, just a 1/4 inch tip is white. Very obviously different from the rest of it. This is disgusting but it's really creeping me out. Antone else want to give it a try? I was here in August and there was no "scat".
  • Hi Brad, I buy the thick chops then brine overnight. Dissolve 1/4 C. kosher salt, 1/4 C. Turbinado sugar, 2T. Dizzy Dust in 2C. apple juice and 2 C. water. Bring chops to room temp. 1 hr. before cooking.I cook at 225 with some cherry chips for 1/2 a…
  • Some people love it with a ragout of Spotted Owl. Just kidding. Chilean Sea Bass ( Patagonian Tooth Fish) has been overfished to the critical stage. While the texture is superb, I stopped using it or ordering it out several years ago. Please pick a …
  • So very sorry! Glad you are available to help them through this. Janet
  • Hi Leroy, Read your early a.m. post. Make sure your back Doc knows about the plumbing problems. One major downside with spinal stenosis is that in addition to the siatic nerve, you can have impingement of the nerve that controls plumbing function. T…
  • You will have scratches but, until you are ready to sell the house, just concider it a nice patina!
  • WOOD! Wood is easy to care for, even in the kitchen. Just make sure to wipe up spills right away. We bought a second home with tile floors through-out and after a week my feet and legs were killing me. Need shoes with arch supports just to get out o…
  • John, If you need to call someone, try Chuck at American Appliance Service in Berlin 410-213-8411. I dealt with him when I was in the rental business and he alwats managed to fix things before resorting to replacement. Check your warranty first, if …
  • For that many people, I would do the asraragus inside while the filet is resting. Pre-heat oven to 450 F. Cover 2 sheet pans with Reynolds Release (no sticking and no pan clean-up). Place asperagus in shallowest layer possible. Drizzle with EVOO, s…
  • My thoughts exactly! She actually seemed pissed that she had won. Considering the Florida real estate market, and the fact that some previous winners have been plunged into financial ruin when they could'nt sell or pay the taxes on the prize, I migh…
